And for the insult of autistic, I wasn't using it as an insult; I just have no more polite word for autistic (the act of focusing on yourself and ignoring others).
The word you're looking for is "selfish" or "self-centered," a far cry from autistic. Autism is a neural disorder. Autistic people are usually some of the most selfless people on the planet. Check the definition of your words carefully before actually using them.
This. Autism doesn't necessaries mean a person will be self centred and selfish. In fact the disorder is often far from it, most Autistic people will go far, far out of their way to make sure other people are comfortable and feel well/happy- From personal experience, two of my close friends are Autistic, and one of them is the most friendly person I've ever met, the other is very quiet, but always goes out of his way to make sure people feel comfortable, sometimes to the extent of doing things people won't even notice.
It's a false-stereotype from back when there was little to no research into autism and how it affects people that Autistic people are selfish and liked to be locked within their own world.
Anyway, moving on back to the manga, before we get completely off topic again...
I think this manga COULD be something. It really could be interesting and give us more insight into how the NOL work, or the Military Academy, they just REALLY need to focus on plot and story over tits and fanservice.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, a little fanservice is good now and again, it's fun. But this manga goes all way out of "fanservice" and into "just boarding on an ecchi manga", which is a REAL shame.
Perhaps selfishly, I don't care about the plot being over shadowed by the fanservice right now. I'm upset that the artist, Sumeragi, is being made to draw this. She IS a hentai/yaoi doujinshi artist, and all, but she does gag/comedy and fight scenes JUST as well as the NSFW stuff. So it's a shame.
If I wanted Sumeragi's NSFW, I'd just buy her out-right hentai doujinshis Q__Q
I hope that after the next update, they go onto talk about the plot more, or Mai (who she is).
Also, seeing as this is in the NEWS thread, I'm going to make a dedicated discussion topic, please go hereviewtopic.php?f=101&t=11256
for the new topic discussion. Hope that's okay!
